    Went to Charles Mill Saturday night, Water was 7' higher than normal. Couldn't get to the ramp at 430, ramp was 30 yards out in the water and the parking lot was completely flooded. I was able to put in at the marina though. We fished from about 4:30 pm to 1:30 am with no bites. Was still having trouble keeping Gills alive. Water temp. was around 76 deg.

    I sometimes use goldfish when have issues with keeping the gills alive. Them seem to last alot longer when the water temp is up.

    It's still that high? I was up there last Wednesday and that lot was flooded. There was Shad jumping all over the asphalt, I wish I had my cast net.
    I wasn't fishing, I just stopped by on my way to Fin Feathers and Fur.

    There was an older gentleman there that kept his boat at the marina and he said that it had just crested sometime Saturday afternoon, I just wonder how long it will take to get her back to normal.
